    Default Online Ads: Sometimes They Get It Right

    Got an ad for this stuff on YouTube this morning.

    https://drsquatch.com/collections/ba...ducts/pine-tar



    May have to order some just on account of the ad.

    That is the only soap my friend Larry Boyle uses, he likes the smell and claims it keeps the skeeters off.

    How's Larry doing?

    I don't even remember what I was looking for, but something similar to this popped up on my feed yesterday morning. Two hours down the internet rabbit hole, but I may have stumbled upon a solution to the She Shed issue

    It's designed to be a patio, but it would go on the side of the garage and the potting tables, yard tools, pots, soil, wheelbarrow, 20 kinds of fertilizer, etc. would have a home

    My daughter is running a digital marketing company. She told me that Google adds go to the targeted customers only, based on their search activity and other factors.

    We use but it is only a pale imitation these days with tea tree oil replacing the coal distillate.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Is that structure made of plastic? Sis in-law has something similar made of that waxy plastic like cheap kayaks are. Five winters and summers later there’s not a straight line in it.

    Looks like aluminum extrusion to me.

    Structures uninformed by geometry tend towards the ramshackle.

    ^ I think I might need to contest that. The Stella Artois brand has been around since 1717, the brewery itself has existed, under a different name, since 1366.

    I have psoriasis, at one stage quite badly. For years I used pine tar soap till control it until the powers that be decided pine tar was a carcinogen and banned it making the soap useless. But I found that Goats Milk soap was even better. Only have a couple of patches now, probably less stress.

    Of course way back in the 1960's I used pine tar as a wax base on my wooden XC ski's. I reckon I still have a jar down in the wax box in the shed, along with a pair of never used wooden ski's.
